Pop Culture Shock Collectibles Presents Mortal Kombat X SCORPION 1:4 Scale Statue
June 19, 2016

Product Pre-Order Launches June 27th

“Vengeance will be mine!”
One of the most popular characters in all of gaming, Mortal Kombat X finds Scorpion’s humanity restored by Raiden, on a mission of vengeance against the evil Quan Chi with unlikely ally Sub-Zero. Known once more as Hanzo Hasashi, he is now a tragic figure, his hellfire powers dependant on his own emotional pain. In order to tap into them, he must relive his greatest shame, the murder of his family and clan, and risks once again being consumed by his Scorpion persona if he does so for too long.
Netherrealm Studio’s unofficial mascot, their company logo bears the wildly popular Scorpion’s silhouette, and he has appeared in every franchise installment and spinoff, considered a formidable opponent by no less than Batman.
“With so many great new characters and cinematic DLC in Mortal Kombat X, it would have been easy for a twenty-year-old character to be overlooked,” said Jerry Macaluso, President of Pop Culture Shock Collectibles. “But not only did they give him a phenomenal new costume, they actually improved the character himself. We’ve done a lot of Scorpion pieces over the years, but I’ve been dying to do this one since we first saw the designs two years ago!”
PCS’ craftspeople were tasked with creating the greatest iteration of MKX Scorpion produced to date, and the results of their efforts are extraordinary. Sculpted in high-quality polystone on a light-up Lava Base, he seems to have stepped right out of the game —  or right out of Hell   — full of menace and conviction.

Daniel “Julius Marx” Pickett has been around toys his whole life. The first line he ever collected was Mego’s World’s Greatest Super Heroes line back in the 70s. He has been surrounded by collectables ever since. In 1999 he was confounded by a lack of information and news about some of his favorite toy lines he was collecting. Since he couldn’t find the information he decided to pursue it himself thinking other people might also be interested in the same news. He started writing a weekly column on the toy industry and action figure for a toy news site and in a years time he tripled the sites daily traffic with his updates, reviews and product features. He built relationships with every major toy manufacturer and many sculptors, painters and mold makers. He grew his hobby into a world wide expertise that the industry has embraced. In 2004 he teamed up with his toy buddy Jason “ToyOtter” Geyer and they created their own website www.ActionFigureInsider.com. Daniel has been quoted in both industry and mass media press outlets. Over the years Daniel and AFi have been sought out as experts in the field. Daniel was regularly featured on “Attack of the Show” on the G4 network as the primary contributor to their “Mint On Card” segment, and our front page has been linked to from USA Today’s “Pop Candy” Blog twice. Daniel’s content has also been featured on MSNBC.com, Time.com, The Wall Street Journal, The Saturday Evening Post, CNN.com, AssociatedPress.com Wired.com, Fark.com, Boing-Boing, Gizmodo.com, Ain’t It Cool News, the Official Star Wars blog, Geekologie, G4, CNet and Toy Fare magazine, among many others. He has consulted on toy lines, books, documentaries and TV shows. But all of that really just sounds snooty and “tootin’ his own horn” – the long and short of it is that Daniel loves toys and he LOVES talking about them.
